What we women have to think of ..myself and my daughter took straighner -gHD and they worked fine. Because we were a family we bought the excursion from Island as it was safer as we did not want to get lost or miss the ship - lots of people did go off by themselves and the ship also give you information how to get to these places - but I am useless with maps - hope this helps.

Thanks very much for the info. I posted this question on another site and they said they had 2 sockets in their cabin.One was 110v and the other was 240v. Their straighteners worked ok in the 240v plug, but when they had to move cabins they only had a 110v plug and they didn't work. I just wondered if you had different voltage sockets in your cabin. I am terrified my straighteners won't work as it would ruin my holiday!!! I can't even take my really powerful hairdryer because I know it definitely won't work. I've never had this problem before on American cruise ships so I can't understand why some people ar having problems.

From where the ship's bus drops you in Livorno (which is a dump by the way)you can either get a bus or a taxi to the railway station, at a reasonable cost. I walked it but it would be too far for most.Train is inexpensive but remember, after purchasing your ticket from either a self service machine(in English) or at the kiosk to validate it in one of the machines on the platform as in not doing so you run the risk of getting a fine.In Pisa you can again get a bus (which takes you for a tour of all the back streets and then back to the station before eventually going to the tower) or a taxi, your best bet, again not too expensive. Just ask for the 'Duomo' and they'll know what you mean. There are some nice little souvenir stalls in the square around the tower, which is nice but there isn't a lot else to see. Let me know if your itinerary takes you to Civitaveccia, for Rome as doing Rome on your own from there is even easier than Pisa from Livorno and well worth it. Regards, Keith.

As a general rule, straightening irons need to be dual voltage to work correctly on our ships. You can arrange your own trips at any of our ports of call. However, this will mean you won't necessarily get the full service of a guide who will give you lots of useful information on your excursion, not forgetting of course, that they are there to ensure you have a fantastic time in Pisa.

A Drinks package and is it worth it?

By Jodie Baldwin

Drinks packages?? A Lot of cruise lines offer these free at certain times as a promotion. A lot of guests I book say they don’t drink and can they have a discount instead and its just not worth them having. However it is FREE, and yes ok if you don’t drink alcoholic drinks the package will also cover soft drinks, bottled water mocktails and sometimes speciality teas and coffees.If you haven’t been offered a free drinks package when booking your cruise you may want to know th...
